From the estate of Andrew J. Offutt, author of science-fiction, fantasy, and underground erotica, and a Stanton colleague. Stanton and Offutt collaborated on 100s of original erotic comics and digest fiction, notably "Stantoons" and "Blunder Broad" digests, and were close friends who regularly corresponded through letters, photographs, story and art proofs, or sexy trinkets. Offutt was an avid science fiction author noted for "Conan"-themed fantasies, debuted as a published writer in 1951, and wrote 100s of erotic novels pseudonymously as John Cleve, Turk Winter, John Denis, Jeff Morehead, Opal Andrews, and others. His "Spaceways" series is perhaps the ultimate collaboration of science fiction and erotica. He and Stanton could be credited with surviving and propagating the publishing crash of the 1970s as VHS brought new audiences to adult entertainment, while converting previous generations. For consenting, mature audiences. Scarce smut.
